The final phase of the neighbourhood of Westlake is expected to get underway soon.

On Monday, city’s municipal planning commission approved the development of lots for 28 detached homes and 44 duplexes.

“You could see the shape of it by fall,” said planning assistant Martin Kvapil, with Parkland Community Planning Services.

In February, MPC rejected the application from Trademark Western Properties due to concerns about a lack of space for on-street parking.

The developer reduced the number of lots by four and increased the lot width along Windermere Close in the northwest section along Hwy 2 to address the problem.

Proposed housing was also changed to detached and semi-detached homes from townhouses.

Kvapil said once Westlake is complete, housing construction will be focused in the northeast end of Red Deer in Clearview, Timberstone, and Timberlands.

Johnstone Park and Johnstone Crossing are also pretty well complete, he said.
